Like a kid in a candy store, I browsed for a good 45 minutes to an hour, spending most of my time looking through their stacks and stacks of vintage magazines, something I could do for hours. It was hard to choose only two, but I managed.
I left with these four treasures.
And here is the can of Bon Ami which has been on my antiquing wish list for a long time (yes, I have an antiquing wish list).
I'm not sure how old it is, but it has some pretty dated illustrations on its sides. I know it's NOT from the 50s, and the illustrations were updated to a more modern "housewife lady" in the 1940's---so my guess would be early 40's down to the mid 20's. Mine is most likely from the 1930s and only has one of the top holes punctured at the top. Maybe the person bought it in the 30s when money was tight and only punched one hole in the top so as not to waste any more powder than what was needed. Oh, if only this little can could talk!
Have a Happy Vintage-loving Day!
